Synthesizer Manuals: Madrona Labs

The Pacific Madrona, Arbutus menziesii, is a beautiful evergreen with distinctive reddish-brown peeling bark. It grows in the Pacific Northwest and down along the coast into California. Madronas have tenacious roots that can dig as deep as bedrock for water, so they often locate themselves on arid bluffs where other trees can't grow.

Brian Willoughby: Brian's work hovers around that point where analog electronics and computers meet the physical world in a practical way: custom software, circuit design, and decades repairing stage-abused electronics. He has too many guitars, but not enough synthesizers.
